‘I wouldn’t allow something like that’: Magath blasphemes over Bavarian trip to Ibiza, Nagelsmann angered

“I wouldn’t allow something like that”
Magath blasphemes over Bavarian trip to Ibiza, Nagelsmann angered

It is a possible distortion of competition by the pompous FC Bayern: Felix Magath begins with the head games, the Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann pushes back. Now the Hertha coach is upping the ante and complaining about the champions’ record vacation after Mainz went bankrupt.

As a precaution, Felix Magath sensed a distortion of the competition after the match point was awarded. Hertha BSC had narrowly missed the premature rescue by going 1-1 (0-0) in the basement duel in Bielefeld when the coaching fox fired verbal poison arrows in the direction of German champions Bayern Munich.

Magath did not like his 1: 3 (1: 2) failure at Mainz at all – especially since Munich are the next opponents in the sixteenth table of Stuttgart: “FC Bayern are champions. I don’t know s “He stopped playing football. It’s not pretty,” he wrote.

Reactions followed quickly. Asked about Magath’s statements, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann replied: “That’s very smart of him. He won’t do it completely selflessly,” he said annoyed and advised to his colleague to watch the game: “So he can call me. I’m not talking about Hertha’s performance either.”

But Magath followed on Sunday. “I certainly wouldn’t allow something like that, something like that wouldn’t cross my mind,” he said of the Ibiza trip photo of many Munich stars after the Mainz game and reinforced: “Once a championship celebration is understandable, but not before three weeks.”

Stuttgart can only smile wearily

At VfB Stuttgart, after the meager 1-1 (0-1) victory at VfL Wolfsburg, thus saved, they reacted with a smug smile to Magath’s ignition. “We don’t need it,” said sporting director Sven Mislintat. Hertha, he said, “have it in their hands – and shouldn’t need Bayern Munich”. He launched a defensive path for his club: “First win relegation, then stay in the league”, was the motto.

For half an hour, however, Magath’s rescue mission with Hertha BSC seemed to have been fulfilled prematurely. But then Arminia managed to equalize in injury time through first Bundesliga goalscorer Joakim Nilsson – and VfB scored almost at the same time. He was “only” four points ahead of 16th place – the rescue of the old lady was postponed for at least a week. Magath commented on Maxi Mittelstädt’s big missed chance to make it 2-0: “It’s surprising that he passed the ball again. He made that decision and we all have to live with it now.”

The situation is much more threatening for the strong East Westphalians, but their interim coach Marco Kostmann has tried to be confident. “The point can still be precious. It was very Arminia. We are still capable of holding the Bundesliga two games before the end. That’s all that matters.”

On Friday (8:30 p.m. / DAZN and in the live ticker on ntv.de) at the already saved VfL Bochum, a victory for Bielefeld is a must. “We have to do it all or nothing,” said veteran Gonzalo Castro. FC Augsburg can approach the last two days much more calmly. Despite the lesson 1: 4 (0: 2) against 1. FC Köln, the Bavarian Swabians are so to speak saved. VfL Bochum even capped off a largely carefree season with a 4:3 (2:2) knockout at Borussia Dortmund on their feet.
